We see a lot of urinary tract infections in both dogs and cats. Some signs to look for are frequent squatting to urinate with little urine production, blood-tinged urine, licking of the genitals and sometimes overall not feeling well. The earlier you catch these signs, the easier it is to treat. If you make an appointment for us to see your pet with this suspicion, please bring in a fresh urine sample if you are able to!

We are closed in observation of Labor Day. We will see you tomorrow during normal business hours. Have a safe holiday!
